RJR's Joe Jaracz Now Licensed in California
Congratulations are in order for Joe Jaracz, who recently passed the Professional Engineer exam for the state of California. With Joe’s accomplishment, RJR now has Professional Engineers licensed in 36 states and Guam.
Professional Engineers are a self-policing group of professionals, recognized by state law which grants them certain rights and privileges and requires certain responsibilities; thus, each state has its own examination and licensing procedure. The law requires registrants to be competent, truthful, thorough and prompt in the execution of their assignments. Their legal obligations are explicitly stated in state administrative code with respect to the general public, their clients, to each other and to the board of registration.
Each license earned by a Professional Engineer is an accomplishment and is deserving of recognition for diligence and integrity.
Job well done Joe!
